    Pope John Paul is my hero. I know he deserves to be declared a saint for all he reprisented. He touched many souls. He was not judgemental and he never condemed any.

    My hero POPE JOHN PAUL

    Love you always

    I pray to JP2 that I may be accorded the chance to attend the beatification on May 1, 2011. We Filipinos love him dearly. He has a special place in our hearts most especially when he visited us.
